monopitch-roofed porch to No.1. The windows are canted bays
containing forward 12-pane sashes with flanking 8-pane sashes;
central dormer is also canted with similar windows under a
hipped roof. Parallel roof is gable-ended to right and
continuous to left.
INTERIOR: Both houses have secondary staircases. Otherwise
